Trekking in Nepal is the dream of adventure lovers. Nepal’s glorious mountains, plunging rivers, deep forests and jungles have drawn adventure seekers for many years. Today they continue to offer challenges and pleasure to hikers, mountain climbers and river rafters. But you don’t need to be an athlete or mountain climber to enjoy the wonders of this amazing country. There are so many possible destinations and styles of trekking that first time visitors can easily find a trek to suit their level of fitness, their schedule and their budget.
There are two main types of trekking in Nepal: teahouse or lodge trekking and camping. Lodges are usually simple but very clean and quite comfortable; meals and rooms are reasonably priced and most visitors enjoy the dal bhaat, momo's and other fresh dishes teahouse owners cook for them. Whether you trek solo, or as a couple or small group, this is an excellent way to travel. You meet new people each day--both Nepalese and citizens from around the world who have been drawn to experience the wonders of Nepal’s mountains on foot, day by day walking higher into the Himalaya.
With teahouse trekking, you can go at your own pace, stopping early at a lodge to relax, read, and watch the sunset, or pushing on for an invigorating all-day walk (with of course a nice lunch break and a freshly prepared hot meal.) Most of the trekking regions of Nepal have plenty of villages with lodges and teahouses, making this style of trekking possible in many different parts of Nepal’s mountains and for varying lengths of time. You can visit the Khumbu (Everest region), Annapurna region, Langtang, and other regions for a tea house trek ranging from one week to more than month.Read More
